the military. and put their lives on the line. >> thank you supervisor cohen. supervisor farrell. >> supervisor farrell: a number of items. first of all regarding the shooting at sandy hook elementary in connecticut. this was an unfathomable event. as a parent it hit so close to home that i am amazed i never imagined it and i have had a pit in my stomach ever since. 20 students, four for teachers and two administrators. i have a first grader. every day 34 americans are murdered with guns during president obama's final four years in office it is estimated that 40,000 americans will be killed with guns, the same amount of people killed in vietnam. says the shooting in arizona which killed six people including a nine-year-old and seriously injured than congresswoman-- as the city we should continue to lead the way to advocate for and pass policies that protect the general well-being of the society. today i am introducing two resolutions, supporting senator dianne feinstein's assault weapon legislation; and a resolution supporting the sandy hook promise, born out of the event that killed tho
that all americans are treated farrell and equally. that's why it's critical that congress pass the violence against women act re-authorization. since its inception, this act has always been bipartisan. last april the senate passed a strong bipartisan re-authorization bill. unfortunately the measure failed in the house, but it must pass in the 113th congress. the safety and security of american women should never be politicalized and never has been so in the past. it is my hope that we can put the politics of the last election aside and get down to the business of legislating policy for the american people. we must reaffirm our commitment that women in the united states are offered all necessary legal protections. thank you, mr. speaker, and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? -- from illinois seek recognition? without objection, the gentlelady from yim is recognized for one minute -- from illinois is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, i rise today to recognize the sout
